It has recently been made illegal for parents to let children have a small glass of wine at dinner, even on special occasions. This insults everyone who behaves responsibly with drink, which is the vast majority of people.

When I was a child my sister and I occasionally had wine with dinner. Contrary to the claims of Labour MPs, I did not become a hardened binge drinker. (I rarely drink at all.)

As usual, this law just criminalises decent people, because those who don't care simply won't obey it anyway.

It's not child abuse to let your kids have a small drink of wine with an evening meal, so this law should be scrapped.

Why is this idea important?

Stop decent parents being branded criminals for teaching their children some responsibility, as well as breaking down the "aura" surrounding alcohol.
